Journalling reads: Lukas loves it when he gets to make cakes and then cover them in rainbow sprinkles.The last time that we did this you were watching with interest from your baby walker. I thought you might like like to join in, so I poured some into a little container and put them on your tray. You had no interest in decorating the cakes but you really enjoyed making a mess and licking them off your fingers!

Journalling reads: To be honest with you, sports days are never very interesting. There is a lot of standing or sitting around doing nothing and a lot of waiting. But nothing is ever boring when you are around. When you were supposed to be sitting quietly with your class, you were busy wriggling, giggling and doing other things you probably weren’t supposed to be doing. When you were waiting in line for your turn at the events, you were waving and pulling silly faces at us. All of your friends thought you were so funny. The only time you even looked slightly nervous was when it was your turn for the event, and it was for a tiny split second. It never bothers you that you are not exactly gifted at sports and you always come last, but you really enjoy taking part and show really good sportsmanship. Everyone in the crowd can hear me when I am cheering you on but I don’t care I am proud that you are mine and I love you Lukas.

Journalling reads: After playing in the garden we headed to the big park to play in the snow. Someone got the bright idea tp pile even more snow on the bottom of the slide and let you go down headfirst!

Journalling reads: Sometimes I can be such a child, for my 25th birthday I was pretty insistant that all I wanted for my birthday was a chocolate birthday cake. I don’t really like icing so me and Lukas decided on an alternative, a frozen double chocolate fudge cake. My favourite way to eat it, is straight out of the freezer before the chocolate on top goes runny. To make it slightly more interesting since it was a milestone quarter of a century birthday, so we just swapped out the boring birthday candles for something a lot more interesting, sparklers!

Journalling reads: At the school fete one of the events, that seems to be there every year is the bouncy horse races. This time around there was no-one for you to race but you still wanted a turn. It was hilarious watching you try and stay on the bouncy horse because you were laughing so much every time you fell off. The horse’s “clothes” kept on falling off which made you giggle even more. It took a while but you eventually made it across the finish line. All of us including the teacer running the race were really proud of your persistance to finish, but no-one was as proud as you were of yourself for doing it!

Journalling reads:When you were younger, it was never easy to do anything fun with you like cooking. You had a real phobia of getting anything on your hands or being dirty. so we used to cheat. We would buy a packet cake mix, put you in your painting apron and get out nannie fredas food processor. we got to have all of the fun of baking cakes together without any of the mess. i only wish you would have at least tried some of the cakes we had stood and made. Or at least not insisted on covering them all in that icky pink icing. We always ended up with so many we couldn’t eat them. I will say one thing though, everyone daddy worked with used to love it when we baked, because they always ended up getting all of the cakes to eat so they were not wasted. 22nd May 2005
